Hi,

I have been using alot of my drawings for my computer desktop backgrounds. I have been experimenting with IrfanView to give them a little kick.

I drew this one in between waiting for my test station at my work to reboot. Once I was done, i kinda wish I had drawn it on regular paper instead of the scrap I used. To eliminate the vertical lines I experimented with the emboss, sepia and rain drop and 3d button features.

The result is my current desktop. It is a little hard to see small but on screen, it looks kinda cool. I included them side by side for comparison as well as single copy.

Thanks for looking.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jeff,
That looks like great fun! You sure are an inspiration.

It's fantastic to see you have taken advantage of this new feature to upload more than one image.

This is a simple sketch of a lone tree out in the wilderness by the side of a lake/river.

I enjoy doing these types of drawings experimenting with the perspectives.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jeff
Now there's a word I love to hear ... 'enjoy'. You've certainly got your perspective right, it is a simply attractive scene.

I centered the image in good ol' faithful Irfanview, and I've left your original here too. Hope that's ok with you!

Old Volcano

Mountain behind a hill

Mountain behind a hill

This is a scene of a mountain with a hill in front of it covererd with trees.

This is one of my larger drawings and I'm still experimenting with making the mountain features more realistic.

In this one my focus was on the mountain ridgeline trying to give the effect of a snow filled bowl. I thought it kinda looked cool in negative also.


***Note from Kerry:
You're right Jeff, it does look very effective in negative too! It's great to see you are trying different things, you're doing very well.

Mountain Landscape

Mountains and valleys

This is a scene I sketched while I had a couple of minutes on hold the other day. I drew it using a blue pen.

My initial starting point was by drawing the 10 trees on the sorta stair step hill above the 2 bigger trees in the bottom. It just grew from there.

The earlier one I sent was rather small, I enlarged it a bit for a better view.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jeff,
I love your doodling efforts, it's great how it flows from your pen while you are patiently waiting for someone to answer your call. I also enjoy seeing what you are experimenting with. I hope you don't mind but I cropped your image so it sits in the center.

Scene 2

These are a couple of quick, no more than 5 minutes each I drew on a couples of yellow 3x5 post-its while I was waiting for my PC to reboot.
I am always drawing these types of scenes and I have about 100 pieces of paper laying around with various scenes on them.
Thanks so much for letting me share them here with you.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jeff
Your drawings always give me peaceful feelings, I guess it's the same way you are feeling when you draw them. It's my pleasure that you share them here so thank you!

Mountain Puzzle

Put Togther

This is a sketch I did on several scrap pieces of baseboard I cut when we had out flooring replaced. I thought it would be a nice simple puzzle for my youngest grandson. I roughly held them together with one hand while I did the sketch. Enjoy.

Note from Kerry:

Thanks Jeff, I have enjoyed this very much. It is an excellent thing for your Grandson to keep too, I hope you've written on the back for him.
I think the jumbled one looks like it produces a great scene, too! I'd put this up on my wall and I'd leave those gaps in place - perfect!

In negative

This another of my landscape drawings. Experimenting with reflections in the water and the distant tress.

I included an Irfanview negative version which gives a different perspective.


***Note from Kerry:
Jeff, I think that's such a pretty view. I do like seeing the negative version too, it's very striking.
